Disadvantages of the D13AA engine

  • First of all, this diesel engine is known for freezing the crankcase ventilation system in severe frost;
  • The timing chain is notable for its unstable resource, it can pass both 100 and 300 thousand km;
  • The Bosch fuel system is reliable and only the pressure regulator sometimes fails;
  • Infrequently, but there is a wedge of the plunger of the oil pump pressure reducing valve;
  • Also, the hassle throws up the EGR particulate filter and the ever-leaking heat exchanger.
